  • the adequate distribution of fire extinguishers
  • a working fire life safety system if construction is happening in an existing space
  • proper means and methods of executing works
  • educated workers with a degree of awareness of their works and safety in general

Especially the last part is of highest importance, as more often than not, a carelessly discarded cigarette bum can lead to a fire.
